Whether you are an experienced angler or just getting started, the 'Fish Washington' phone app should be on your mobile device.
The free mobile app is designed to convey up-to-the-minute fishing regulations for every lake, river, stream and marine area in the state.
The exception, for now, is the app does not yet include information on shellfish and seaweed collection rules.
The app is available for download at Google Play and Apple's App store.
- Interactive mapping to help anglers find fishing near them.
- Details on harvest limits and allowable gear for fishable species in each body of water.
- Access to the Fish Washington website and instructional videos designed to convey when, where and how to fish in Washington.
- Locations of boat launches and other fishing access points.
- Ability to add waypoints on maps, and report poaching in progress.
- Downloadable updates and offline capacity designed for those who may not have cell service in remote areas or on the water.
WDFW encourages everyone to download the Fish Washington app by visiting Apple's App store or Google's Play store. Please use the commenting features in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store to provide feedback, which will help the department make improvements to the app over time. The public can also leave comments at MobileAppDev@dfw.wa.gov.
